After realising what life is about I also realise I have a hard time seeing what love is about. People are supposed to act and think according to what is best for them personally - not because of someone else. If they do something for someone else, it's ultimately because it will (or should be) ben...

Hopefully one of you two might gain the nerve to ask one another to come by their house to watch a movie or play a video game or study for a test or help cook dinner or...well, you get the message. If it's meant to happen, it will. Congratulations on your find, BTW. Hi redrobin, your reply definite...

So be open to meeting/dating some of them and find out what happens. You might meet someone younger that you really click with that also clicks with you. Or you might meet someone your own age this works out with. It seems that about 26 is the age at your upper end of the younger people you spoke of...

Academically I did just fine with the curriculum as it was presented. I was ahead of the class in several areas for most of public school, as was my twin brother. We both took honours math classes in grades 8 through 10. He took an honours English class in grade 10. We both took a career prep progra...

It's not necessarily social impairment. It may be culturally determined behavior. I agree with some others that making generalisations over one experience with a foreign individual is similar to an NT making generalisations about people with Aspergers after watching Rainman. That's the whole point ...

For most of my life I haven't been overly into music and would prefer to be online in silence vs. having the distraction of music. Sometimes I listen to the radio while online now, but over the last year I've taken to listening to the radio almost constantly - especially while out of the house. I do...

I agree w/ the others here; it's time to tell him and work on things together vs. your AS traits potentially driving him away. If he cares about you, it won't be thaaat big of deal as he's already gotten to know you quite well. It might help out a lot as he won't wonder why you're acting a certain w...

Neurological conditions are not on my list of things to look for in a partner. They never were for me, either.. until I realized I had them, and so do the friends I get along best with. That's why it's evolving into possibly becoming a criteria for dating. Otherwise I wouldn't have been indifferent...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deaf_culture Read these articles they fit like a glove for aspies, if you replace mindblind with deaf.

so if people on the spectrum could be perceived by the senses to be from a different culture (say, autism culture) maybe the NT world would act more like my department in their response to us (welcoming, patient, helpful, accommodating, understanding, etc.). This is a well documented Autistic "thin...

Yep. I've been working on my health in many ways the last 5-6 months, had a bit of a slow down due to illness and a death in the family, but am getting back on track and am now feeling like it's time to move on and get a life again, starting with a new & better job w/ full time hours vs. the two...

I'm not really sure, but with how well I get along with my close Aspie friend, I'm leaning more towards AS as a potential partner in the future. But for right now, no one, intentionally - as I have more than enough things to sort out in my life before I'd be comfortable expending time and energy on ...

No, it was true & factual and sometimes the truth hurts when you're not in the right mindset to face it head on & realistically. And he didn't have great points, he had depressive statements. Since you're the person that was recommending illegal drugs to deal with social anxiety in my other...

I tend to make a better effort to say things like this in a more formal business setting vs. informal social setting, although, if I find myself at a gathering with friends where their norm is to greet & meet people like this - then I'm much more likely to do it, and after a while it just become...

About half way through watching it now.. seems to be a well put together video that would be good for explaining ASD to recently diagnosed children, or as a bit of a crash course for almost anyone who needs to learn these things.
